Construction starts at Royal Artillery Barracks for London 2012 Shooting Venue 

New images of the London 2012 Shooting Venue - located in the grounds of Woolwich’s historic Royal Artillery Barracks - were today released by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).

The temporary venue in southeast London will host the Shooting and Paralympic Shooting competitions, in addition to Paralympic Archery.

The contractor for the three enclosed ranges and three open-air ranges is Hertfordshire-based John Sisk & Sons, with the venue set to be completed ahead of international shooting test events next spring.

Spectators will enter the venue with views of the world-famous military base - the longest continuous Georgian building façade in the UK - before taking their seats to watch the sporting action.

ODA Project Sponsor for the Shooting venue, Richard Arnold, said: “The Shooting venue is the ODA’s final venue to start construction and will be ready to host test events next year. It will be a fitting arena for athletes during the London 2012 Games and spectators will also benefit from an excellent location that is steeped in history.”

LOCOG Chair Seb Coe said: “LOCOG Chair Seb Coe said: “Staging the Shooting and Paralympic Archery events at the world famous Royal Artillery Barracks will provide a memorable background during the Games which will inspire the athletes and provide a great showcase for London and the UK.”
